What People Are Saying

Working with Cheryl last year was one of the best experiences in a long time of pursuing my professional development. She was able to help me define my visions, focus my efforts, and guide me towards an efficient and successful job search. Even though she has not worked in my field, she provided me with plenty of tailored resources and taught me how to use social media tools for professional networking and growth. Even after finding a new job I continue to work with her on my career development goals, because she thinks out of the box and gives advice that consistently brings me closer to the 5-year goal that she helped me formulate. Cheryl always appears to be one step ahead of your thought process and is extremely talented at asking the necessary questions so you can reach your own conclusions as to what seems best for you. She is motivating, supportive, optimistic yet realistic, and one of the most positive forces you can have on your side while trying to reach the next goal.”

Susanne Ebling

Cheryl has been a pleasure to work with and she gets results. I found a new position, in a tough economic environment, through LinkedIn using the strategies that Cheryl taught me. I was in the job market actively looking for over six months. I was not using social media before the pilot program with Cheryl and was having very limited success. Once I started using social media based under Cheryl's direction, my success rate improved dramatically and the number of interviews increased resulting in multiple job offers. I highly recommend Cheryl as a career coach.

“I had been struggling with the umptenth rewrite of my resume for weeks, unable to get it to speak out for me. Then a mutual friend recommended Cheryl. I didn't call her right away since I stubbornly insisted to myself that I could do it without help. Finally, I realized that I needed a new set of eyes and some new thinking. Cheryl's response knocked me over. In a few short days I had a powerful resume that is exactly what I was looking for as well as a cover letter that I can easily customize. Cheryl delivers!

Richard Floyd

Cheryl wrote my resume, and after weeks of sending out my old resume and getting no phone calls, as soon as I got the first draft I sent it to a few job listings and was 5 for 6 in return phone calls- yes 5 for 6!!!..after no responses in the first 2 weeks; Cheryl's work made that much of a difference!! I know anyone looking to move on from where they are working and needs that GREAT resume should contact Cheryl immediately.”

If you are stuck in your career, you may be tempted to blame everyone else but yourself.  After all, the economy still isn’t great, and many companies are reluctant to hire or promote existing staff.   But in spite of the truthfulness of these statements, it still may be worth your while to look within.  There may be things that you are doing that are holding you back. The bad economy may not be the only reason.

Here are some possibilities as to why your career has not taken off the way that you want it to:

1)      Your skills are too limited. If you have a very narrow skill set, your career options are also narrow. You should invest in yourself and obtain any certifications that would make you appealing to employers. This will keep you from being stuck in neutral.

2)      You are not known outside of your department. If you work for a large company, being known only within your department can hinder your prospects. There may be other opportunities within the organization that you may be interested in, but if you are not a known entity, you will not be considered for them. Join organization-wide committees to increase your exposure.

3)      You haven’t kept up with your network. Most people find their jobs through someone that they know. By not maintaining contact with people in your network, you are excluding yourself from career possibilities. It is likely that you will remain stalled in your career if you do not make an active effort to stay in touch with your network and let them notify you of opportunities.

4)      You have limited your visibility to just your organization. Professionals who want to be viewed as experts in their fields can demonstrate their expertise by presenting at professional association meetings and getting published in professional journals and/or the general media. Presenting at professional association meetings, being published in professional journals or being quoted in the media speaks volumes about your level of expertise.

5)      You have become pigeonholed into one area. Cross train so that you can perform more than one function if necessary. In an era of cutbacks you make yourself more valuable if you are flexible and can do more than one job. Being knowledgeable of more than one functional area also positions you to take on greater responsibility within the organization.

As you can see, there are solutions to these problems.  You can start making changes today that will improve your career options.
